to put on a holiday tie to take up the case of mr. scrooge and the top 2%. as nancy pelosi asked, why, oh, why is congress on another recess when they could be extending tax breaks for the middle class just in time for christmas? >> this is a moment of truth, the clock is ticking, christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, why are you not bringing this to the floor? is this a forever, forever protection of the wealthiest people in our country at the expense of the middle class? >> yes, that just about sums it all up. did we mention bain's congress has been in session all of one day this week, back on tuesday. six-day weekend. nice work if you can get it. if you listen closely to boehner and pelosi, you can perhaps hear the beginning notes of a harmonious christmas carol starting to take shape. >> it's not about the rate. it's about the money. >> there are a lot of things that are possible to put the revenue that the president seeks on the table. >> i know. it doesn't sound like much, but, remember, this is congress. and listen to the president as he lit the national christmas tree las

? >> reporter: a very interesting moment when the former democratic house speaker nancy pelosi had blunt advice for the current republican house speaker in terms of learning how to get his caucus together to find a deal that can actually pass congress and that the president will sign and those blunt words were, quote, figure it out. sources of both parties say a tuesday evening phone call between the president and speaker boehner did not go well. >> well, the president and i had a deliberate call yesterday and we spoke honestly and openly about the differences that we face. >> cnn has learned at least part of the reason why. tuesday's gop counteroffer included a renewed explicit call for a, quote, permanent extension of bush era tack cuts for the top 2% of americans. according to a democratic source familiar with the language. the democratic source argued that proposing to permanently extend tax cuts for the wealthy that the president calls a nonstarter shows that republicans are either, quote, unwilling or unable to make an offer they can pass and the president will sign. >> those magic beans

. thank you for your attention to this appointment. signed sincerely, nancy pelosi, house democratic leadership. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to clause 12-a of rule 1, the house will stand in recess subject t and his plan does not begin to solve our debt crisis. it increases spending. our plan meets these standards, cuts spending and paves the way for real job growth in our country. in the five weeks since we signaled our willingness to forge an agreement with the president, he's never put forth a plan to meet these standards. frankly, that's why we don't have an agreement today. the longer the white house slow walks this discussion, the closer our economy gets to the fiscal cliff and the more american jobs are placed in jeopardy. >> good morning. lings -- the president said on a daily basis that we should be passing a balance plan. but we continue to hear only discussion on one side of the ledger. it's always been about tax rates increases and nothing about spending. we insist, let's talk about a balanced plan, where are your proposals for spending cuts. even his advisors say a

to do? you going to borrow it from china? alisyn: i mean, you know, nancy pelosi's taken a lot of heat for that famous saying, you have to pass the bill to figure out what's in the bill. but now that seems haunting, because the fact that even senators now are saying, whoa, whoa, whoa, slow down, we want some of these things repealed. >> 17 democrats in the senate including senator-elect elizabeth warren from massachusetts. 17 democrats in the senate with three weeks to go before this tax is imposed suddenly realize this is going to cost a lot of money, it's going to hurt my voter, it's going to hurt the device industry. please delay it. all of a sudden. alisyn: maybe they should have read it. >> but it was very long. alisyn: it was long. [laughter] you've got that right. stu varney, thanks so much for parsing all of this. >>> meanwhile, a violent political power struggle on the streets of one major u.s. ally, but as both sides protest in egypt, there's also a push to legitimize some hard-line islamist groups. so in three minutes we'll check in for a live report from the heart of the cr

the house when nancy pelosi was speaker. this was an unserious proposal. and i can understand why my good friend, the majority leader, would rather not vote on it, because i can't imagine that it would get many, if any, votes in the senate here as well. having made that point, with regard to pntr for russia, when the two parties first sat down to discuss the so-called fiscal cliff, it was widely assumed among republicans that president obama and democrats actually wanted to avoid it. that was the premise that any possible agreement had shown. that was the common goal, or so we thought. over the past couple of weeks it's become increasingly clear to many of us that we were simply wrong about that. incredibly, many top democrats, including the president, seemed perfectly happy -- perfectly happy -- to go off the cliff. that's why the president has been more interested in campaign rallies than actually negotiating a deal. and it explains why the president is now stubbornly insisting on raising tax rates when he himself said just last year that you could raise more revenue from capping deduct

by reported a sense tomko will not say nancy pelosi's discharge position on the middle and come bush tax cut his office tells me. >> guest: absolutely not. you don't sign a discharge position. they wouldn't be enough signatures to do it anyway. i point out the made her with speaker pelosi i didn't see any democrats signing many with cards and discharge positions and certainly never enough to get a bill out for years. that's not the right way to do it, but the idea makes a lot of sense. it doesn't violate anybody's situation, so at some point the two sets of come together. i think would make the rest of negotiations easier. each side gets a lot of credit. >> host: if you believe that, someone may cure you and say something or putting polity and politics ahead of what she believed. just go this a negotiation between the different sides and you can't have people freelancing. our chief negotiators of speaker. i have enormous confidence in him. he's come to agreements before. i recognize that. my advice is offered in private, leaked in public. i think whoever did that throw the press about the la

. in addition, the democratic caucus, under the leadership of nancy pelosi, went over that bill line by line three times. i remember it well. but let me get to the business at hand because, mr. speaker, i haven't seen an honest day's work in congress here in quite a while. earlier this year, a broadcastering company said it reported $320,000 a week to run the house of representatives, but the majority spent the money on shuttling us back and forth to washington and ask us to sit here and twiddle our thumbs. no more. it's time to get down to brass tax and give the american people a return on their multimillion dollar investment. we start here and now by passing the middle class tax cut. all we have to do is take up a senate bill. it's right there. noigs that we ought to really take up the violence against women act from the senate. not the house bill. the house bill did not include numbers of women in america under this act, native american women, gay women, immigrant women and we couldn't tolerate that. let's take the senate bill and pass it that bill has reduced domestic violence 67%. we ne

in the senate. here is nancy pelosi. >> we all know the president made it very clear he was supporting the extension of the middle income tax cut. everyone, 100% of the american people, would benefit from it. 100% of taxpayers, small businesses, wage earners, and the rest. the republicans are saying rather than passing that, they want to hold it hostage to giving an additional tax cuts to people making over $250,000 a year. that is not negotiating, that is hostage taking. today on the floor of the house, the democrats have proposed a discharge petition, with only a couple of republicans joining the democrats, would automatically come to the floor, and i predict will receive the overwhelming support through the house of representatives. the american people want us to work together. we are in agreement. why? why can we not vote on something where we have agreement, where we have fairness, that will work to create jobs, to reduce the deficit, and will have fairness. -- fairness? this is the heart of the matter that is holding us here. this is about the $250,000 line that the president sai
